    I broke my advair inhaler...what am I to do?

    Its Friday night and yesterday (thanksgiving) I dropped my advair 250 in the sink into a green bean casserole dish that was soaking... the advair was totally soaked. I tried to let it dry out overnight, but when I went to use it tonight it just let out a bunch of water

    I called CVS pharmacy, they wont give me another one, I have no refills left on my prescription, and both my general physician and my asthma doctor are closed on the weekend. I can go 1 day without advair, but on day 2 I get a really tight chest, out of breath, light headed.

    What am I supposed to do now? Go to the ER? I have horrific insurance

    Do you have a rescue inhaler?

    Your physician's practice should have someone on call at all times. Call and leave a message with the service. I had to do that one weekend when I ran out of Flovent and forgot that I didn't have a refill on it. It wasn't my doc but he phoned in one refill.
